  1. Hallsville Freshmen B team beat PT by a touchdown. Hallsville Freshmen A team was beating PT 28-6 when the game was called due to a bench clearing brawl just before the half.
  2. He had an older brother, Kendrick, who, in my opinion was a better athlete. Both were about the same size in high school. I believe that he was even quicker than Roddrick. He was freakish on offense AND defense. Since we can only guess at his potential, now I believe that he would be a much talked about pro prospect much like Roddrick is today.
  3. Yep, it is the Ferrell kid. He is strong and fast and has very good instincts. Hope to see him play otherwise it is a waste. Since the game is versus PT he should get some playing time.
  4. STUD. Saw him and Kindle in Hallsville this past summer. A couple of large men. :notworthy:
  5. Wow (maybe not)! Just a couple of days away from kick-off and nothing is being said about this game? Have the faithful given up? I understand a freshman has been brought up for Hallsville. Will he play defense? Against PT should be a good game to test him. Hallsville wins big.
  6. Another east Texan, Rodderick Muckelroy, leads the team in tackles; led them last year too.
  7. They must be having a "tiff". I saw Colt last week after the game in Posados in Round Rock without Jordan.
  8. It is almost as bad as promoting upcoming shows with images superimposed on the screen. I hate it when I see a small character from another show walking into the shot with text stating to tune in for the next episode of...
  9. There should be a decent crowd at the game. This is also the "Western Days" weekend in Hallsville so that will draw a few extras. Of course there will always be a few people there, like me, who will be there no matter on how the 'Cats are doing. Unfortunately the season has been a bit disappointing for some people (predicatable season for me so no disappointment) thus the size of the crowds reflect as such. Like you, I am surprised at the lack of attention of this game. Neither team has had a stellar season so far and I believe that followers of each team are a bit afraid to make any

  11. Yes, the punter. He seems to get commented about each week. He is very good with tremendous hang time and distance. He will definitely play at the next level. I also believe that he is a junior.
  12. In reference to the year that I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, 1988. I graduated in December of 88. My college roommate and I were accused, by his dad, that we stayed an extra semester just for the football games. We still meet each year in Austin, with our families, to catch a game or two. I will have a daughter attending UT in the Fall of 2010.
  13. Agree. He was an absolute stud on both sides of the ball. On offense he had an extra gear. He would either run away from you or over you. Incredible balance and ability to change direction. I swear he could change direction in mid-air if he needed to. And on defense, he was going to find you. Once he found you you were looking for your mouthpiece.
  14. Whoa there! Hallsville always does great in the lower grades, at least in 8th grade. Godwin (8th grade coach) knows how to win games. The freshmen this year absolutely dominated most everyone last year. They are undefeated this year so far but have not been as dominating. A lot can happen in 4 years. Kids change interests, quit growing, move away, etc. Until Hallsville has a "system" they will continue to be an "almost" team. With all that said, we "should" see improvement for the next 4 to 5 years IF the kids maintain their current pace.
  15. To be honest, he has done better than I thought he would. Not sure why I felt the way that I did. I am just glad that I was wrong! Maybe because he was not flashy in high school either. His older brother seemed to have the more "wow" power.
  16. I learned of his illness a few months ago from a friend of his that lives in Hallsville. He is on our prayer list in our Sunday School class in Hallsville. I do not know Matt personally but from what I have read and heard of him he is a man that we should all strive to be like. What a role model.
  17. STUD. Watched him excel at Hallsville for four years. As a junior he was matched up against Adrian Petersen in a playoff game in Tyler (Hallsville won). Probably next year he will be matched up against Petersen again in the NFL. Muckelroy does not get the attention he deserves IMO. Above all he is consistent.
  18. And...forgive my innocence, but just WHO is the "Clyde Family" ???? I've never heard of them (or maybe I heard about them so much I began to tune out their existence....) I was wondering the same thing. Of course I am from Hallsville and would not know. I do watch KLTV and never see them referenced on there.
  19. All of the advice mentioned so far is great. Just be sure to go to college. Having a degree, any degree, will open doors. Granted that some jobs require a specific degree but just having a degree is a bonus. I have an Architecture degree from UT-Austin (1988) and only practiced architecture professionally for about 6 months. Since that time I have spent the majority of my career in engineering and sales. Getting a degree will show an employer that you have the dedication to start something and finish it. It also reflects that you are teachable and are willing to learn. By the way, I kn
  20. I will be there too. I hope that I do not sleep through the game. Hallsville plays in MP Friday night which means getting in late. It is a 2:30 kick-off on Saturday so we would have to leave early Saturday morning. May just drive to Waco Friday night with the family and spend the night there. Either way it is going to be a busy weekend.
  21. Yes, he punted last year as a soph. Made some level of "All State" teams. I believe that you are taking the LNJ comments out of context. This past Friday night his punting did stand out versus the play of the balance of the team. Is he good? Yes. Can his punting be the difference in a game? Yes. Will it? TBD.
  22. Will the real Hallsville Bobcats please stand up? Hallsville really suprised me this past week. The effort just did not seem to be there. What with it being Senior Night and the first home game I figured that there would be some sort of intensity there. It was lacking. This Friday is Homecoming. Another night to get up for or another night with distractions? Hopefully the coaches will rally the troups. A positive however is our kicking game especially the punter. He can punt for height and distance. A good weapon to have. The place kicker can really get his foot into it as well.
  23. Prayers from Hallsville. Happy moments, PRAISE GOD. Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. Painful moments, TRUST GOD. Every moment, THANK GOD.
  24. Agree. Too many things can happen before a kid sees varsity; physical growth rate varies, loss of interest, choosing another sport, poor grades, move away, etc. Though fun to talk and brag about it is only potential at that point. Potential is ability that is yet to be exploited (or wasted).
